in reply to How many continents have you visited?

A Slightly ambiguous question, no?

I live in one continent and visit the others, so only an alien can visit all 7

So, if anyone votes 7 then it's positive proof that they are here and read PM :)

I lived on 2 different continents already, will I be hijacked and imprisoned in Area 51 after voting 7?

Yes indeed, but no need to worry about. I've been told that this is not a bad place for real geeks.

Perhaps you get access to some nice alien hardware and can do some funny reverse engineering?

Update:...and they have all types of debuggers in Dreamland.

The one that you live in does count towards the answer as well (visitation by default if you will).

"How many continents have you set foot on?" would have been a more accurate title but is also more verbose.

What stops you from visiting the continent you were born on?

No, because not everyone on Earth lives on a continent. Any island smaller than Australia is not considered a continent, at least in the US view. Even if you consider a "continent" to include nearby islands -- Japan as part of Asia, Manhattan Island as part of N.A. -- there are plenty of islands that aren't included by that, like the Hawaiian Is., NZ's islands, Easter I., and the Canary Is. So such an islander could answer 7, or 0 if they consider "visiting" a continent to include living there (as I did, having been to many parts of N.A. besides my homes).
